Operations Research Modeling

As defined by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), operations research is the professional discipline that deals with the application of scientific methods to decision-making, especially to the allocation of human and material resources.

Much of this work involves analytical and numerical techniques such as experimental design, advanced statistical analysis, regression analysis, multi-attribute decision analysis, and linear/nonlinear programming to develop and manipulate mathematical and computer models of organizational systems composed of people, machines, and procedures.

Operations research draws upon ideas from engineering, management, mathematics, and psychology and requires a combination of skills and experience in the fields of applied mathematics, computer science, economics, industrial engineering and systems engineering.
